_According to science life has started 3.5 billion years ago based on the age of the oldest rocks with fossil evidence of life on earth. These rocks are rare because subsequent geologic processes have reshaped the surface of the planet. Todays Man has formed periodically from the structure of monkey's as other creatures forming.
Religious books give us a quite different thought on this matter, but I did not find any big difference between these two thoughts. The moral thing of all the Religious Books is, there is one Creator called by different names, who creates whatever we see or not.
As we found from these books, the first man and woman reached to this earth from Heaven as a punishment and to get recovered. If I close my eyes for a moment and try to imagine the time when the first couple stepped in to this earth.... No electricity, no homes, no kitchen, They were walking without shoes and clothes, fruits were the only available food around.
From there to now, the way we developed us, proved that Human being has the ability to win anything around. But I am here to describe about some surprises invented by the science and technology. One thing human being tries and follows everytime and that is how to make life more easy and comfortable. By following this technology controlling the world today. As of 2020 there are around 7.8 billion peoples living in this world.
From birth to death everyone enjoying the technology as possible. There are so many inventions, but I want to focus on the robotic technology today.
What is a robot
A robot is a machine that can carry out a complex series of actions automatically, especially one programmable by a computer that replaces human effort.
And Robotics is the engineering descipline dealing with the design, construction and operation of robots. Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics have become increasingly hot topics in the world. Similar to robotics, artificial intelligence is a construct with varying definitions and potentially broad interpretations. For starters, it is useful to distinguish between general and narrow artificial intelligence.
The word 'robotics' came from the story Liar, a science fiction novel by Isaac Asimov in 1941. Althrough the science of robotics only came about in the 20th century, the history of robots and human invented automation has a much lengthier past.
In fact the ancient Greek engineer Hero of Alexandria produced two texts, Pneumatica and Automata, that tastify to the existence of hundreds of different kinds of Wonder machines capable of automated movement.
The nineteenth century marked the acceleration and wide adoption of industrial process. According to International Federation of Robotics, IFR's data, Japan is the world´s number one industrial robot manufacturer by delivering 52% of the global supply in 2018. China supplies 36% of total industrial robotics installations with about 154,000 units.
IFR said that it expected shipments to decline in 2019 befor bouncing back with 12% growth per year between 2020 and 2022. But due to Covid19 impact there becomes some changes.
George Devol invented the first digitally operated and programmable robot in 1954. And now I am going to introduce some exclusive robots to you that are amazing in a word.
Asimo is a humanoid robot developed by the Honda Motors Co. in 1986. It is 4 feet and 3 inchs high and weighs around 48 kg.
Asimo was tossed with a purpose of aiding the needs of the elderly and disabled as well as manage household errands. Asimo has feature alike humans. It can make gestures, speak and interact like humans which makes it a friendlier.
Asimo holds the capability to sense the movements of mumerous objects while capturing cisual information by it's camera eyes, it also determines direction and distance. Asimo runs on a Lithium ion battery that wighs around 6 kg and takes 3 hours to recharge. It is skilled in Japanese and English language and has a 2.7 kilometers per hour walking speed.
In 1999 Japanese multinational conglomerate, Sony Corporation presented AIBO in a small and pretty dog's structure. AIBO is full of charm and inflectious energy. With lifelike expressions and a dynamic array of movements, Aibo's lovable behavior brings warmth and delight to everyday lives.
Titan the Robot
Titan is a partially-mechanised robot costume, invented and developed in 2004 by Nik Fielding and his company Cyberstein Robots. 'Hysterically funny', 'the ultimate crowd puller', 'thrilling entertainment', 'surpassed all expectations', 'incredibly cool', 'totally blown away', all these phrases used by the clients to describe after watching Titan's unique show. This world famous Titan the Robot is available to rent.
In 2014 Aldebaran Robotics, now known as SoftBank Robotics invented 'Peeper', world's first robot designed with the ability to read emotions.
Smart Peeper is the result of a ten years experience in the service robotics field. It is 120 cm tall and has no truouble in perceiving his environment and entering into a conversation when he sees a person. The touch screen on his chest displays content to highlight messages and supprt speech. His curvy design ensures danger-free use of a high level of accaptance by users.
Sophia is the first robot citizen in this World. In February 14 of 2016 Hanson robotics, a Hong Kong based engineering and robotics company developed Sophia. It is a realistic humanoid robot capable of displaying humanlike espressions and interacing with people.
Sophia is designed for research, education and entertainment and helps promote public discussion about AI ethics and the future of robotics.
The Sophia 2020 R&D version is now available for research, academic and B2B applications. It combines the award-winning Hanson patented robotics hardware and software with unmatched robotics design and artistry.
Sophia 2020 includes Hanson Robotic's renowned facial expressions, gestural arms and hands, autonomous social interactions, an intigrated SDK, and a choice of mobility bases including a self-navigating option.
Here is not the end, a group of researchers from Stanford University created a snake-like robot that grows like a vine by squeezing through hard to reach places. The sole aim of the prototype is to act as a search and rescue device, moving through rubble and small openings in order to reach trapped survivors by delevering them water.
The snake robot starts as a rolled up inside ou tube with a pump on the end and a camera positioned on the other side. Once initiated, the device inflates and grows in the direction of the camera, while the other side stays the same.
The basic idea behind this robot is straightforward. It’s a tube of soft material folded inside itself, like an inside-out sock, that grows in one direction when the material at the front of the tube everts, as the tube becomes right-side-out.
In the prototypes, the material was a thin, cheap plastic and the robot body everted when the scientists pumped pressurized air into the stationary end. In other versions, fluid could replace the pressurized air.
Toy robots become very popular to every kids in recent years, among those Kuri and AIBO both are the top level names.
Besideds all these there are a number of robots are using for industrial purposes. Industrial robot is an automatically controlled, reprogrammable, multipurpose manipulator progammable in three or more axes.
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have created a four-legged soft robot that doesn't need any electronics to work.
The robot only needs a constant source of pressurized air for all its functions, including its controls and locomotion systems.
People were always crazy to think about the unlimited sky and its objects. Nasa landed their Preserverance rover on the planet Mars. They are going to collect informations about everything around Mars with the help of this robot.
Preserverance rover is a six-wheeled robot with a radioisotope thermoelectric generator as a butt-mounted power source.
Never has a science mission gone to the planet with so sophisticated a suite of instruments, never has a robot been targeted at so promising a location.
Robots are an increasingly common sight in stores, helping customers carry their shopping, keeping track of stock and mapping the layout. Now they’re getting a bit more hands-on thanks to Japanese company Telexistence, which has begun trials in convenience stores of a robot shelf-stacker that can be controlled by a human via VR.
The Model 'T' looks like the most mundane Gundam ever. It’s basically a robot torso mounted to a waist-high platform, restocking shelves in a store with its two articulating arms and complex hands.
People are trying to do the works can not be done by them. Robotic technology helping Mankind to learn and develope, and to discover the creations among the universes. From this universe to another we now have a possible way to check out what is acceptable or not.
